. doing $1 million in annual sales to the u.s. alone. why isn't bp using this peat moss to soak up part of the spill? the owner of the peat moss company telling that newspaper bp has informed him it cannot use it it because the oil giant would not then be able to retrieve the oil afterwards. you may translate that as, the oil giant would not be able to sell the oil afterwards. bp and it's co-conspirators gaining from previously unreported tax benefits. it's allowed to write off the rent it paid to transocean that owned deep water horizon in order to lease the oil rig. that saves bp hundreds of thousands of dollars a year. transocean having fled first to the cayman islands and switzerland to lower its corporate tax bill by almost 15%. the center for american progress counting nine different subsidies that the u.s. government gives to an industry that makes more than any other industry, including, refunds for drilling costs and refunds for searching for oil. subsidies make up 88% of all federal subsidies, just cutting the oil and gas subsidies out would save the u.s. government $45 billio

different subsidies that the u.s. government gives including refunds for drilling costs and refunds for searching for oil. subsidies make up 88% of all federal subsidies, just cutting the oil and gass subsidies out would save the u.s. government $45 billion every year. from the outrageous to the absurd, it proved today that during the 1970s bp put its name on a board game called offshore oil strike about the thrills of drilling. rediscovered by the uk metro newspaper, the game clearly never rivalled monopoly, but the parallels between it and the current disaster nothing if not eerie. the rules are this according to boardgamegeek.com. two to four players compete in the north sea exploring for oil, building platforms and laying pipelines to bring offshore oil back to the player's home company. first player to make 120 million wins, but they have to avoid dreaded hazard cards which read blow out, rig damaged, oil slick clean upcost, pay $1 million. how quaint. time to call in oil and gas industry veteran bob cavnar. thanks for your time again tonight. >> good evening, keith. thanks hav
of the biggest leaks in u.s. military history. nearly 92,000 secret documents were released by the whistle blower website wikileaks. most of them field reports covering the years 2004 through 2009. the trove was given first to three international news outlets, each of which spent weeks researching the findings. all three concluded that the documents were real, even if the intelligence they provided didn't always pan out. what the leaked documents show isn't completely new information to anyone who has been paying close attention to the conflict, but they do supply a new level of detail to points war critics have been making for years. for example, it is not news that afghan civilians have been killed in the crossfire, but until this leak we did not know that more civilians had been killed by secret special forces than the government has acknowledged. it is not news that pakistan appears to have been supporting the taliban, but until now we did not know the explicit details of how the pakistani intelligence service met directly with taliban leaders and helped them plan attacks against allied force
york. breaking news from new orleans. the u.s. fifth circuit court of appeals has ruled on the moratorium of offshore drilling, ruling against the government and for big oil, saying the moratorium cannot remain in place while the government continues to pursue its legal defense of that moratorium, originally overturned last month. oil companies expected to wait anyway before resuming new drill to avoid having to stop in the middle if the government ultimately wins. the one relief well to end the gulf spill, bp says might be completed before the 20th of this month, well before its mid-august estimate. but a member of congress wants answers about the new timeline. our second guest will point out bp has massive financial incentive to keep that oil spilling. until that relief well cuts off the flow. it began with an interview by bp managering director bob dudley. saying his company wants to show progress by july 20th, because that's when prime minister cameron comes to the white house. in a perfect world with no interruptions, he said, bp's relief well drilling would have re
that he has been unfairly demonized and vilified in the u.s., adding that bp's response to this tragedy has been a model of good social corporate responsibility. it has mounted an unprecedented response. hayward also said he won't be showing up on capitol hill thursday to explain bp's role in the release of the lockerbie bomber because he's got a busy week. the senate was forced to cancel the hearing as a result. hayward's boss, the chairman of bp, told cnbc this morning that replacing hayward with another company executive, bp managing director bob dudley, was the chance for a new beginning. >> in order to rebuild our position, in order to rebuild our brand and reputation we need fresh leadership and that is why we're doing the change. >> as we reported last night the senate held hearings last week on safety at bp before the blowout at which bp's so-called vice president of safety refused to say he felt in any way the 11 workers who were killed. senator jeff merkley, democrat of oregon, took part in those hearings as a member of the health, education, labor, and pensions committee. he
at midnight, at least what's left of it, but u.s. district judge susan bolton today blocked the state from enacting the most controversial sections until the courts can sort out what's legal and what's not. judge bolton, who was appointed by president clinton on the recommendation of republican senator jon kyl argued that checking the status of every person arrested not only burdens lawfully present aliens because their liberty will be restricted, but she also found that the verification requirement will divert resources from the federal government's other responsibilities and priorities. in mexico city, word of the ruling was greeted with cheers from about 100 protesters who had gathered in front of the u.s. embassy. one protester worried about what might happen to his granddaughter in arizona if her parents were ever stopped, told the associated press, "i knew the judge would say that part of the law was just not right." the mexican government, meanwhile, called the decision a step in the right direction. back in arizona, governor jan brewer, who signed the law in april and is now runnin
